Project

“eyeWander” proposes a new way to experience interactive video within VR.

Users can generate a personalised video feed by aggregating facts and topics, simply with the eyes, into a sharable playlist of content.

Watching and interacting in this way offers a unique and immersive journey through world changing projects from humanitarian aid agencies, demonstrating how interactive storytelling can enhance the public’s understanding of complex issues.

Installation and VR app

“eyeWander” is a VR project made out of 3 complementary parts: an artistic installation built around a VR headset, a standalone mobile VR app and a documentation website.

For begin 2018, we plan to bring the current mobile VR app prototype to a new level.
Beyond the local use within an artistic installation, the upcoming app will connect complex realities from our world to a personalised VR experience, that can be shared across the web.

A virtuous cycle allows users to become aware of humanitarian issues, and then to engage by sharing their own “wandering”, simply with their eyes, through the stories, facts and figures of our project…

This VR project will be presented to the public through different forms and use cases:

  • An artistic installation for festivals and events, starting in November 2017.
  • A standalone mobile VR app for Android & Samsung Gear (or any cardboard device), for begin of 2018.
  • A website for documentation and communication purposes, starting in September 2017.
